Washington, DC Area Families Save Money and Receive Stellar Service Planning Trips to Disney Parks and Cruises
I had the pleasure of interviewing Staci Kimball, a local mom of three and a Glass Slipper Concierge, a travel agent specializing in Disney vacations for families. She takes care of all the details in planning specialized trips to Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Disney Cruises, guided Adventures by Disney tours, even Disney’s Aulani resort in Hawaii. An official graduate of Disney’s training program for travel professionals who has visited the parks many times for on-site training and trips, Kimball will advise and plan all aspects of your Disney vacation to make sure that your trip is as magical as possible within your budget.
And her services? Completely free! Her expert opinion will help you save money, as she will advise you on all current deals available at your Disney destination; which military or other special discounts will save your family the most cash; advise you on the most efficient dining plan for cost-savings for your group; and work to find you the best room at the resort that best meets your needs. She will book all of your dining, calling over and over to secure your family that princess breakfast or other popular, wait-listed item, call directly to your resort room-assigner to request free upgrades, and countless other special touches. Kimball can even apply new deals as they come in to existing Disney vacation reservations, and that she has saved clients up to two thousand dollars by doing so!
My family and I are huge fans of Disney Vacations! As a Southern California girl, I was blessed to visit Disneyland many times in my childhood, and now I believe in sharing trips to Disney World with my East Coast kids and Disneyland when we visit my parents.
Check out our 20 Favorite Attractions at the parks (with photos), as well as the memorable experience I had at the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration 2012.
After a detailed trip interview and intake, Kimball will devise for you a crazy-detailed trip itinerary (about two pages per day!) which recommends which days to visit which parks, when and where favorite characters are located, which times of day are best for each ride, which attractions your family and children’s ages will most like, when and where to obtain Fast Passes. Every effort is made to truly customize your entire experience, eliminate your stress and save you time.
Kimball prides herself on her many repeat Disney guests who count on her for her trained opinions and hours of time spent with Disney call center specialists ensuring that all your family’s preferences are secured. She works booking ground-level rooms and scooters for groups traveling with grandparents, makes sure that birthdays and other occasions are recognized and celebrated, secures babysitters and kids clubs for adult nights out, she even overbooks dining reservations to give her clients options.
Kimball has taken special tours and training of Walt Disney World’s New Fantasyland, and says that families will adore all of the special designed to make families’ lives easier. For instance, if you have ever waited in line for an hour or more for the Dumbo ride, at New Fantasyland there are two Dumbo rides, side-by-side, and when you arrive parents are given a pager. Your children will play under a Storybook Circus Big Top playland until your pager is buzzed, and not even realize they were “waiting in line.”
Speaking of Disney, don’t forget to enter my Disney on Ice FOUR ticket giveaway for the chance to take your family to opening night of Disney on Ice, Treasure Trove at the Verizon Center on February 13th!
I had the chance to visit and tour the new, gorgeous and affordable Art of Animation Resort and their beautiful Finding Nemo rooms when I was honored to attend the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration with my family. Kimball says that she is happy to call this resort again and again to try and secure a most popular Nemo family suite or other favorite character room, saving her clients those hold times and constant calling of the resort. As a family of three children who is looking to book one of these cost-savings (and so fun!) suites for our Disney World trip this year, I can appreciate this extra effort.
So if you would like all this ease and advice and expertise behind your next Disney vacation, contact Staci Kimball. I loved interviewing her and found her to be a wealth of Disney knowledge!
